The Virginia Down Syndrome Association hosts several annual fundraising events to help our community connect and grow.  From our Step UP for Down Syndrome events, Annual Gala, T21 Golf Tournament, and other community gatherings, we strive to ensure our network and outreach is sustained and positioned to grow so we can continue to serve families and individuals with Down syndrome.

If you have any interest in sponsoring or being a part of any of our events, please contact Alison Markow at
